News and Updates
Infinite Prop House Round
Our first infinite Prop House round is live and open for proposals with custom skateboard deck concept art! Winners will receive 0.20 ETH for the artist to produce custom boards with their design, and winning designs will also be produced and given to Gnars sponsored shredder Tom Rohrer who will ride the boards on his channel which has garnered millions of views! Check out the round on Prop House here.
Unfortunately, some really gnarly deck designs became stale after not reaching the vote threshold within 7 days of being posted. As proposals are required to reach the threshold within this time period to win, it is crucial that we as a DAO try our best to regularly pay attention to these designs as they come in.
NounGnarversary Prop House Winners
Congratulations to all of the winners in the NounGnarversary Prop House round! We are stoked to see how you all celebrate the Nouniversary in August. We’ve even already seen the completion of another set of noggles ‘opstacles’ for one of the events! Winning proposals can be found on the Prop House page for the round, and individual threads for each winning proposal have been created for discussion in the Discord forum.
Gnars HD Coming Soon
Gami and Ilustradora have been hard at work behind the scenes on a special Gnars HD release. We’re expecting more news as the NounGnarversary approaches on August 8th, so keep an eye on the Gnars twitter account for more info!
Did you know you can mint drops on That’s Gnarly even if you don’t have a wallet? Simply use your email as shown in this video!

Gnars Just Keep Getting More Gnarly
Even throughout this relentless bear market, the Gnars community has continued to grow strong.

Gnars are a new way to fund extreme athletes
We prefer a world where kids aren't sold energy drinks by their heroes. So as a community of action sports enthusiasts, we've formed a DAO to rethink how extreme athletes get sponsored.
Gnars are NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain
Based on Nouns open source and CC0 artwork, they're stored fully on-chain with no external dependencies. Each one gets you a DAO vote and memberships are available at auction, forever.
